May 24, 2021 Samyang AF 12mm F2 Review

I had mixed feelings about some of Samyang’s (also sold under the Rokinon brand) early full frame lenses, but I really loved their compact APS-C primes whose design language was in many ways a precursor to their full frame “Tiny Series”.  I love the tiny series, and the newest lens in the series (the Samya [Read more...]

May 17, 2021 Sony FE 14mm F1.8 G Master Review

Sony is on a tear with their recent lens designs.  In the past couple of years we have seen one exceptional lens after another, with standouts including the 24mm F1.4 G Master (perhaps the best 24mm lenses thus far – my review here), the Sony 135mm F1.8 GM (one of the sharpest lenses I’ve ever tested [&hell [Read more...]

May 10, 2021 Sony FE 35mm F1.4 G Master Review

The classic 35mm focal length is one that, until recently, was slightly underrepresented on Sony.  For years the sole “professional” option was the Sony Zeiss Distagon 35mm F1.4, a lens with a very mixed reputation that seems to be due to having a lot of sample variation (some good copies, some not so good).&nbs [Read more...]

May 3, 2021 Samyang AF 24mm F1.8 Review

It’s always intriguing to me when two very similar lenses come to the market at the same time.  I was just wrapping up my coverage of the Viltrox AF 24mm F1.8 (my review here) when I got wind that Samyang also had a compact 24mm F1.8 prime lens in the pipeline.  When Samyang sent me […] [Read more...]

April 27, 2021 Sigma 35mm F1.4 DN ART Review

It’s hard to believe that just a couple of years ago Sigma had no lenses for Sony full frame E-mount (FE).  They started with a huge drop of “adopted” DSLR lenses that gave them a basic lineup built on their existing lenses, though those lenses were always somewhat compromised.  They weren’t des [Read more...]
